ARIES: Maybe you’ll feel a bit highly strung or wound-up now but you can make good use of your hyper-active state. You will be absolutely on the ball where discussions are concerned, having more than enough ideas of witty suggestions to keep the conversation flowing. Just make sure you aren’t being too sharp at points. The main thing to remember is that Pluto around now changes life a little bit. It tries to get rid of things that are no longer any use to you.
TAURUS: This is definitely not the time for sitting still. You will be whizzing around on short-distance journeys, or writing more letters than usual, making phone calls galore. You feel you just have to talk, talk, talk. Just watch a slight tendency to tell other people exactly what you think of their inadequacies and flaws. Needless to say that will not always go down well. Maybe you’ll be looking too much on the dark side now seeing only problems and losing your normal optimism.
GEMINI: The Sun is beside Mercury in the heavens, which will make you think, talk and move a good deal faster than usual. It’s a fidgety kind of influence. Though you may get so wrapped up in one tiny obsessive detail that you won’t see the wood for the trees. What’ll be said by yourself or others will be important. But everyone will seem a bit gridlocked. No one will want to compromise, partly because they feel they might be humiliated if they give way.
CANCER: IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be chatty, restless, enthusiastic, charming at times and overly intense at others. With one close partner try to soften your approach even if they are being stubborn. Being confrontational will only end you up in no-win discussions. Your positive approach at work will help open new doors and you’ll need to stay alert to grasp new opportunities. From August home will be happier and you’ll be more at peace with yourself.
LEO: You may be inclined to spread yourself a little thin at the moment because you’re trying to handle six things at once. Get your list of priorities straight before you start. Then tick them off as you go along and you’ll end up feeling more than pleased with yourself. You may get a little too pushy or forceful about trying to bring everyone round to your viewpoint. Or someone may be doing the same. Try to step back and be a little more detached.
VIRGO: Sometimes it’s a good idea to be self-critical, particularly before other people get a chance to have a look at your pet schemes. That way you can forestall criticism or complaints and appear very efficient. You will have a great love of mystery, wanting to find out what’s going on in the deep, dark and secret corners. So you will be drawn to the hidden places in life. But it’s important that you sort out your own secrets before probing into anyone else’s.
LIBRA: Too many ideas are chasing round inside your head so you are at risk of getting in a muddle. You’ve got to have some kind of structure to what you’re saying, otherwise you won’t communicate clearly. Sometimes you can get a little frustrated when Pluto is around as it is now because you’ll feel you’re not getting your own way. You’ll then tend to get manipulative which can backfire. So watch that you’re not trying to influence loved ones or mates too much.
SCORPIO: If you can go with the speed of your thinking and not trip yourself up, then you could encourage companions into joining in. They will appreciate the freshness of your approach, and way of seeing what they miss. You’ll be able to solve difficult puzzles in your emotional life and elsewhere now. But down go so far down into the depths you end up only looking on the bleak side. Try to stay with one foot on the surface, and one foot deep down.
SAGITTARIUS: A really bright, breezy mood will keep you fully stretched. You will be a positive fountain of inspiration. But trying to catch your stream of consciousness and bottle it may be trickier. You will not want to stop long enough to consolidate your thinking or come to sensible conclusions. What you are learning now you are learning at a much deeper level than usual. You’ll not be superficial, or interested in anything that is too frivolous. Just don’t force your viewpoint on others.
CAPRICORN: Your mind will be leaping from subject to subject at computer speed. Unfortunately, companions may be slower-witted than you, so try to slow down once in a while just to check they are actually hearing what you have to say. Be absolutely clear about what may seem to be trivial details. You’ll be able to solve difficult puzzles in your emotional life and elsewhere now. But don’t go so far down into the depths you end up only looking on the bleak side.
AQUARIUS: You’ll be in mental overdrive, so you zip on so quickly that you miss out on opportunities. It may go against the grain, but if you can pause to collect your scattered wits you will achieve more. If you rush ahead too fast you may get careless or cut corners. Then nothing works well. It’ll be important not to get too dogmatic or self-righteous or get yourself too wound up now. Sometimes you’ll speak in a way that others find slightly difficult to follow.
PISCES: Others may be rather unsettled because of the direct and searching way in which you ask questions. But you’re full of bright ideas, chattering away in grand style, determined to get your views across. Try to listen as well, if you can manage it, since communication should be a two way process. You could pick up useful feedback. Write down some bullet points before you start and that way you won’t be distracted from your main points. You’ll have a penetrating quality about you.
